Manuel Romain - Daddy Has A Sweetheart And Mother Is Her Name 1913 Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder Record

It is Valentines Eve and I am going way back to 1913 with Manuel Romain performing "Daddy Has A Sweetheart And Mother Is Her Name".  It is pressed on a Thomas Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder Record (Catalog number: 1845).  The record is played on an Edison Amberola Phonograph VI-B or BVI.  The Amberola was manufactured in 1913 into 1914 so the record and the phonograph are over 100 years of age.  I think this recording sounds great especially while using headphones.  I set up a red table cover and a couple of Valentine cards for Manuel's "Sweetheart".
